Providence Show Postponed.

Unfortunately, those of you waiting for our return to RI are going to have to wait a little longer. Due to a scheduling conflict with the club, our March 15th date has been cancelled. Sometimes things are just out of our control. We are, however, working on a new date and will share it with you as soon as we have it confirmed.

New Show Announcement: Legendary Dobbs, Philly

Thinking about Philly. Any DFH fans in the Philly area?
It’s been awhile. How about a show?

Thank you.

Last night was a fantastic evening…and it’s all made possible because of your incredible support. Thanks to the wonderful staff at bergenPAC and the crew in 3 Doors Down & 105.5 WDHA. Most of all, as always, it’s a pleasure and honor meeting so many avid music fans. THANK YOU!!! See you again soon.

Back in Providence.

It’s been a little while since we’ve been back to Providence. This coming March, we’re headed back to DUSK – Saturday night, March 15th, 2014 to be exact. And we’re bringing our Jersey friends, OneHundredThousand with us.¬†

DFH Acoustic w/ 3 Doors Down

With all the acoustic ditties we’ve been offering ya, it’s only right that we do a little acoustic performance, wouldn’t you agree? Next month, we’re headed back to the bergenPAC to open the evening for 3 Doors Down, who will also be performing acoustic.

Headed back to CT.

Friends in Connecticut, we’re headed back up your way on Friday, March 28th, when we return to The Room in Brookfield, CT. Looking forward to seeing you all again.

Dead Fish Handout 2013

How’d you all enjoy the Dead Fish Handout we posted a couple weeks ago?¬†Did it make up for last year? Do you want another?

This is our interpretation of U2′s “Stay (Faraway, So Close!)”. It’s one of those songs you wish you wrote for it’s brilliance. Enjoy!

We’re all caught up now on Dead Fish Handouts, until next time.

DFH Returns to Mexicali Live


As the saying goes, “it’s been a long time since I’ve rock n rolled”. After some time away from the live circuit, we’re ready to rock out again and can’t wait to get back to Mexicali Live in Teaneck, NJ for an awesome rock show. Hope to see you there.

Bring on 2014

It’s a new year and we’d like to welcome home a familiar face and big part of the DFH-family. Mr. Mark Birkelbach has returned behind the kit for Dead Fish Handshake. And thanks to Matt Biehl for joining us on the road several months ago. Best of luck.

We’re ready to hit the ground running. New shows, new music and more. Bring on 2014!

Thank you for a fantastic 2013!

As we get ready for 2014, we’d like to take the opportunity to thank you all for helping make 2013 a fantastic year – our team in the music biz, radio and press – our rock n roll buddies with whom we shared the stage with and most of all our DFH-family whose support makes all the difference in the world. We go as you allow us to and so we are sincerely grateful for having you all in our corner. Last but certainly not least, a big thank you to all venues and talent buyers that continue to inject life into the rock n roll music scene.
